Popeye Village

Took this image with my Canon D10 while on my way to the ferry.

Sometimes we overlook things that surround us and are there everyday. However when we photograph them, they remain there for us to appreciate.


Popeye Village, also known as Sweethaven Village, is a group of rustic and ramshackle wooden buildings located at Anchor Bay in the north-west corner of the Mediterranean island of Malta, two miles from the village of Mellieħa.

It was built as a film set for the production of the 1980 live-action musical feature film Popeye, produced by Paramount Pictures and Walt Disney Productions and starring Robin Williams. Today it is open to the public as an open-air museum and family entertainment complex.
